Hair: Chocolate

You will need to wrap the brown yarn around knitting needles tightly and heat your oven to the lowest setting you can. Mine was 170 degrees. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes take it out and let completely cool off. Take 4” curly hair and fold in half. Starting at the base of the back of the head and sew the 4” strips of hair onto the head.

Optional: Weave ribbon around the waist. The Doll’s head is cute without the face sewn on. I used DMC Floss to sew onto the face eyes, nose, and mouth.
